I'm not a fan of rhyming books, but the kids love them. I am a fan of books that feature POC and differing abilities as well as women in untraditional roles. If the artwork reminds you of historic WPA murals, the illustrator has achieved their purpose. #everybodybooks #weneeddiversebooks

mandarchy My students LOVED the roller coaster page. I left it on the screen for inspiration. We compared shoes and considered the person who first drew them as an idea, then the team that found the materials and put them together. Did they use thread or glue? 4mo

Run out and get a copy of this book and donate it to your local library. It's really a message to publishers to publish more diverse books. Purchasing a copy is the stamp it needs, the vote, the endorsement. School libraries are especially underfunded and rarely see new books. Teachers need to build classroom libraries and would love the gift of a picture book. So many children will see themselves in this book. #everybodybooks #weneeddiversebooks

Loaded with precepts. I was worried it would be another adults-love-kids-get-bored kind of picture book, but it is filled with love and gorgeous illustrations. Vocabulary: unfair, unjust, cruelty, injustice, inequality, hate, hurt, and racism, as well as their antonyms; powerful words that will give children the tools to face hard challenges with grace and dignity. #everybodybooks #weneeddiversebooks

Halal Hot Dogs | Susannah Aziz

#weneeddiversebooks Halal Hotdogs tells a funny story that includes Palestinian and Muslim culture. It does not attempt to teach as much as entertain and include children who can identify with the main character.

Kids at my school love nonfiction like this. A true story about a group of boys who build their own floating soccer field and start their own football club. It's an opportunity to learn about the popular sport, places in Thailand and the language as well as perseverance. #everybodyboooks #weneeddiversebooks

My library needs more diverse picture books. This is a fun and beautiful sharing of a Passover when a stray kitty finds a home. The book includes information about Passover for people unfamiliar with the traditions. #everybodybooks #weneeddiversebooks

Kenyazero This sounds like a good read! 12mo
mandarchy @Kenyazero it is. The kitty is too cute for words. Much of the story is implied so lots of room for kids to make inferences. But it has that good feeling family time feel 12mo

I need this book in my library! If you are looking for a book to talk about the pandemic, this is a great start. Pham genuinely illustrated so many experiences of the pandemic lock down when we still didn't have all the information and we were scared to go near our loved ones. #everybodybook #weneeddiversebooks

Beautifully illustrated and well researched historic fiction #picturebook retelling the events of 1 of the 1st memorial day celebrations in the U.S. after the Civil War. Includes background. information that guided the research, a bibliography, web links and a timeline. Great for leading up to the holiday weekend or as an example of how children can volunteer in service to their community. #everybodybook #weneeddiversebooks
